Need T&T Cutout Cookie Recipe!

CathyR | Dec 19, 2011 09:56 AM

I swore off baking cutout cookies YEARS ago! But I was seduced by the pictures of BEAUTIFUL snowflake cookies in EVERY magazine... Bought the cookie cutters and used a shortbread recipe. It was enough of a pain rolling out the dough and cutting out the snowflakes. They looked lovely (unbaked) on the cookie sheet, but as they baked they morphed into undistinct blobs. 20-20 hindsight tells me the dough was too buttery to produce nice clean shapes. But I'm a butter SNOB! Having said that, does anyone have a tried and true cutout cookie recipe? Must I use margarine or Crisco to get cookies that hold their shapes?
